Ocean Data Interoperability Platform

ODIP and AtlantOS together engaged in Best Practices Working Group 

2 November 2017

A Best Practices Work Group (BPWG) has been established with support of ODIP and the AtlantOS project to improve access to documented best practices, in coordination with international and national agencies and related projects.

The long-term objective of the BPWG initiative is to provide the ocean observing community with a sustainable compendium of peer-reviewed best practices in data management and interoperability that can be used in training new oceanographers and data scientists, and also in providing references for experts. The near-term objectives are to 1) formulate the processes and infrastructure that can form the basis of a longer-term solution and 2) engage the ocean observation community in the evaluation of these processes and infrastructure.

The BPWG documentation gives more information about the BPWG, their activities and participation options.

ODIP and AtlantOS will contribute on short term to the 'Evolving and Sustaining Ocean Best Practices Workshop' which will take place 15-17 November 2017 at the Paris, France office of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC), supported by AtlantOS, ODIP, IODE, JCOMM OCG, IEEE, and AWI.
